The Bureau of Public Roads provided funds for a grade separation project, carrying “Jimmy Lee Crossing” over the railroad in Estell Manor, N.J. It is possible that is now Tuckahoe Rd. The project was undertaken as part of a larger grade crossing elimination initiative during that era.
New Jersey Board of Public Utility Commissioners: “A “Works Program-State Highway Department” project on which the Board initiated proceedings and on February 4, 1936, issued an order to eliminate the grade crossing. Contract for construction was let by the State Highway Department on January 11, 1937, and construction was completed in September, 1937.”
